    Not worth the pay if you aren't a server.

    Pros

    Co-Workers share the same sentiments.

    Cons

    Retail Manager will make you write an essay on how to run a business (if you are a cashier). Difficult to get anything done with being one person at the stand (phone ringing, people wanting things, retail or servers wanting something). Very hard to get your stand in line with retail people directing guests towards you. Retail Manager puts too much on one person, and this is a team company.

    Advice to Management

    Tell managers that guests change in demanding products. There are many people that want their food, and then leave. It's very hard to get a person to buy even the littlest of thing when they have no sweet tooth, or they have family around them that they want to spend time with.

    Pros

    they are very flexible with the schedule, the pay is decent, and can easily tranfer to other stores around the country

    Cons

    hours can really fluctuate during the year, they hire too many employees during the off season, if your trying to move into management it is very time consuming

    Advice to Management

    incentives for making goal hours, food costs, etc. And holiday pay for working Thanksgiving would be appreciated
